It is a rainy, wet day in Portland, Oregon! I was going to put these spring treasures out in February-but thought it would bring us all a little cheer and color into dreary January-so out they come now. Come see early spring at Monticello. I will get these treasures out there on Wednesday of this week. The bird eggs in the jars are real. Years ago I found three boses of these eggs at an estate sale of an older gentleman. I have been slowly going through them as they have been hard to part with. I loved the caring hands that found them, cleaned them, labeled them and set them in cotton for me to find. Enjoy!
